Loose Tooth Treatments Cincinnati

Causes of a loose tooth At Patel and Dornhecker Dentistry, patients in and around the area of Cincinnati, OH have access to solutions for their smile with Drs. Jesal Patel and Shawn Dornhecker. When there is a loose tooth in adults, it is important for patients to speak with a dentist to determine what can be done to save the tooth, if possible.

Causes of a loose tooth

Loose teeth can occur due to:
  • Periodontal disease in the advanced stages
  • Injury/trauma to the mouth
  • Bone loss
There are many different loose tooth treatment options that may need to be considered for patients. But first, the dentist will want to evaluate the patient’s dental health to determine the cause of the problem. If the loose tooth is a result of bone loss, the dentist must determine why the bone loss is occurring and then provides solutions such as bone or soft tissue grafting. This helps in building back up the area to offer a solid foundation for the tooth. In other instances, such as the presence of periodontal diseases, patients may need to undergo certain treatments to restore the health of the smile and hope the tooth is able to find stability. Periodontal disease is often treated with procedures such as scaling and root planing, which eliminate the infection from the smile and allow the mouth to heal. This treatment may also be integrated with antibiotics to control the infection.

What happens if a tooth cannot be saved?

If a loose tooth is beyond the point of repair, Drs. Jesal Patel and Shawn Dornhecker may suggest surgical removal and replacement with options such as dental bridges, dentures, or dental implants.
